Origami, the Japanese name for paper folding, is a craft practiced worldwide by millions of people of all ages. Seemingly magical, one sheet of ordinary paper can be folded into almost any three-dimensional shape. Created without the assistance of glue, tape, scissors, or rulers, pure origami is made of paper only.
This exhibition features an extensive collection of origami on loan from Philadelphia area educator Barbara Pearl, author of Math in Motion: Origami in the Classroom. Her collection of origami models has been gathered from 12 different countries including the United States, Japan, China, India, and Russia.
